The art of a soundtrack, or……

I was recently asked by my partner, the French artist Miki, to put together a video of her sport-themed paintings. I usually try and come up with an original piece of music to accompany her art and this time was no exception.

There were a great many pieces to show however, and I knew that the track needed to clock in at around six and a half minutes to allow each piece sufficient on-screen time. I also didn’t particularly want to create a ‘song’ as such, rather, a piece of music, with vocalizations, that hopefully captured the spirit of the images being revealed on screen.

So here’s the video and the track, called ‘Higher, Faster, Harder, Stronger’.   It was an impulsive piece, written on the fly with no corrections to the parts I laid down, but I find it works well with Miki’s stunning images.

You can see more of her work HERE.

The Songwriter Diaries

Now available on Jamendo to download ABSOLUTELY FREE is my ‘new’ album, The Songwriter Diaries. I put ‘new’ in inverted commas because, there’s very little new about it really, and I wouldn’t even call it an album as such, more like a peek inside an artist’s sketchbook, a glance at pieces worked on, nearly finished, unfinished, polished and rough, but essentially, what the artist is about. I’ve purposely avoided messing with these songs and instrumentals, I wanted to give a snapshot of some of the work that, for one reason or another has ‘fallen through the cracks’ or not been generally heard before. The result is eclectic to say the least – download it by clicking on the image below and see what you think!
